Welcome to the DVD Recorders page, DVD recorders are like DVD players but
can record onto blank DVD discs, they work in just the same way that a video
recorder works but record in digital quality so the sound and picture quality
is much better. DVD recorders are a great addition to any home cinema system
as they offer the ability to record television programmes and video from
other sources, when buying a DVD recorder for use with a home cinema system
it is wise to make sure that it supports surround sound technology.
The main surround sound technology is Dolby Digital and this is the standard surround sound technology used on DVD's and digital television so it is a good idea to look for a DVD recorder that supports Dolby Digital, there are also other surround sound technologies such as DTS but these are not as common. There are also features that can improve the picture quality which are worth looking for, these include high definition compatibility and progressive scan which both offer a great quality picture.
There are also other features that you can look for in a DVD recorder, some have hard drives so that you can record without the need for blank DVD discs, this makes recording much easier and also opens up other cool features such as the ability to pause live television. The main feature to look for when buying a DVD recorder with a hard drive is the size of the hard drive, this dictates the amount of recordings that you can record so it's useful to get a DVD recorder with the largest hard drive that you can afford.
There are many other features that are often included with DVD recorders but the most important is Dolby Digital compatibility when being used with home cinema, we have listed some DVD recorders below that have Dolby Digital included and we have also put them with the cheapest first so you can easily find a cheap DVD recorder:
